After a couple of days of non activity, this morning I went for a walk in St Ouen with other WI members from across the island. I was running late due to answering the phone when I know I shouldn't have, but Gloria was kind enough to wait for me about five minutes from the start and we chatted as we walked briskly and soon caught up the group. A perfect day for a walk. This evening we are taking part in a WI quiz but we are one short of a full team, so I don't expect we'll perform as well as we would with a full team. Yesterday we participated in the Island darts semi finals. We were knocked out in the semi finals, but it was not a bad performance for complete novices.
Lizzie has a half day off from school today and is busy making cake pops and cup cakes ready for school, Big Band and JACY tomorrow to celebrate her birthday. She has had the help of three friends. She has made Ferrero Rocher cupcakes with chopped hazelnut decoration, chocolate orange with orange Aero decoration, vanilla cupcakes with marshmallows and cake pops in vanilla and chocolate variations.
I wonder how long it will take to clean the kitchen after they've finished.
I am pleased to report that both of my projects for Fat Quarterly have been completed, written up, photographed at St Ouen's community park and e-mailed to the editors. I hope the projects pass muster.
These flowers were a thank you from a local builder's merchants. When we visited their showroom about six weeks ago, we were completely ignored. Someone asked on the Facebook group called "Bad and good businesses in Jersey" about who to go to for a kitchen and I posted that we'd been ignored at two local showrooms. Well one of the businesses contacted me yesterday to get feedback on our experience and as a thank you sent me this lovely bouquet. A lovely surprise.
